[IMG]John Mighton ‘82 McMaster University

...
John Mighton '82
Dr. Mighton is a mathematician, author, playwright, and the founder of JUMP Math (Junior Undiscovered Math Prodigees). John almost failed first-year Calculus in university, but his love of math and his belief that everyone has great mathematical potential led him to found JUMP as a kitchen-table tutoring group in 1998, John now tirelessly volunteers his time and expertise as the lead curriculum developer for the JUMP Math Student Workbooks and Teacher's Manuals. John also donates all proceeds from his publications and speaking engagements to the JUMP program.
Born in Hamilton, Ontario John completed a BA at the University of Toronto before he returned to Hamilton to lecture in philosophy at McMaster, where he received a Masters in philosophy in 1982. John's Hamilton stay was short lived as he returned to Toronto to complete his Ph.D. in mathematics at the University of Toronto earning him an NSERC fellowship for postdoctoral research in knot and graph theory. He is currently a Fellow of the Fields Institute for Mathematical Research and lecturer of mathematics at the University of Toronto.

His national best-selling book, The Myth of Ability: Nurturing Mathematical Talent in Every Child, describes his successes with JUMP Math, and how anyone can learn and teach math.
John is also a playwright: his plays have been performed across Canada, Europe, Japan, and the United States. As a mathematician and a playwright, John believes that there are more connections between the arts and the sciences than people generally think, and that scientists and mathematicians are often led by a sense of beauty or elegance, and describe their work in artistic terms. John has given hundreds of talks and training sessions to parents and educators. In 2004, John was granted a prestigious Ashoka Fellowship as a social entrepreneur for his work in fostering numeracy and building young children's self-confidence through JUMP Math. John has received three honorary doctorates in recognition of his lifetime achievements and was named an Officer of the Order of Canada in 2010.
